What inspires you to exercise? Everybody is unique.
Pain relief, social interaction, a listening, attentive healthcare provider who’s
encouraging you to exercise, feeling like you are heard and understood all
help. There is something for everyone! Vancouver Disc Centers hopes
to inspire our Vancouver back pain patients to exercise to
keep their back pain at bay.
OLDER BACK PAIN PATIENTS’ INSPIRATION TO EXERCISE
Lumbar spinal stenosis is one aggravating
back pain problem! Older adults really feel its effect as it curbs
their ability to walk and do other daily activities. A study
contrasted three approaches: medical care, community-based group exercise,
and clinic based manual therapy and personalized exercise.
All the patients stated that exercise improved
their pain levels and function but that these effects were temporary.
They had to keep doing them. The most common reasons
for not carrying on with these activities were additional
health issues and transportation. The medical care approach had slight
to no effect. The community group exercise offered social
support and participants continued these classes after the
study. These back pain patients said that the doctor’s ability to
relate to them and listen to their concerns were so
important. (1) Vancouver Disc Centers wants to listen, inspire, and see
our Vancouver back pain patients get Vancouver back pain
relief with chiropractic care and exercise.
HOW MUCH YOU EXERCISE INSPIRES EXERCISE
A recent study reported that six
weeks of two-times-a-week (more so than one
time a week or home exercise alone) supervised physical therapy brought
about significant temporary improvements in
symptom severity, physical function, back and leg pain, and gait disturbance. (2)
It comes back to the benchmark paper by Weber who pointed
out that 90% of patients with a disc herniation and sciatic leg pain responded to active,
energetic, non-surgical care. (3) That’s what
it’s all about at Vancouver Disc Centers! Active, energetic management of
back pain! Patients and their healthcare providers like your Vancouver
chiropractor must go all out to take
care of the source of back pain as well as its symptomatology.
Vancouver Disc Centers is ready and able to do just that to bring
relief to our Vancouver back pain patients! Exercise, spinal
manipulation with Cox® Technic, nutrition, ergonomics training, and more.
